The biggest con these days for the Provari ... honestly ... It's somewhat outdated. Newer devices out there provide things like variable wattage, easier menu systems, and different battery configurations at no extra cost.
Still a great device and well worth the "cost of admission". It's simply isn't the be all ... end all it use to be. It does hold its value more than just about any other device out on the market though ... that's for sure.
It almost sounds from what you're saying is that besides the build quality, compared to the zmax the ProVari may only be a status symbol. Im just left wondering what I could have done with the $150 difference...not that I'm unhappy with my ProVari but WOW.

Its built to last, not only that but its designed and engineered to last from start to finish with every single component.

That doesn't take away from what the Provari IS ... rather states what the Provari can not provide.
If someone is looking for something the Provari can't provide ... you don't just completely dismiss their wants and recommend a Provari "because it works and lasts". Everyone is different and thus, has different needs and wants.
I never recommend a device simply because I use and love it. What I might like, someone else might hate. So it really comes down to what a person is looking for in a device. Every device has its shortcomings ... no need to dismiss them. There is NO perfect device for everyone on this planet. There is no right or wrong opinion ... it's highly subjective.

If Provape catered to every single vaper out there and gave them what most think they want we'd have another version of the Evic on our hands.
Thats also a fact and from where Im sitting that isnt turning so well. I just saw a facebook pic of one with the head completely snapped off.
They key to success in life is to focus on a bare handful of things and do them EXTREMELY well. I think the Provari does that better than almost any pv out there.
Not trying to start an argument here just trying to point out what I think should be obvious.

That exactly the point. NO company can cater to every person needs. So the cons of the Provari can only be the things it either does not do or does not do well. The Provari does everything it does well, so that only leaves what it doesn't do.
So if your one of the people who wants something the Provari can't provide ... best look elsewhere. Otherwise, you can't really go wrong with a Provari. It does everything it states it does exceptionally well.
